"Has Neil mentioned anything about hosting PONO music files?"

Well, candidly speaking, what we actually know so far regarding the architecture of the Pono is pure speculation other than the physical appearance of the prototype. I believe that Neil understands the technology but he sure ain't given anything away so far. I mean for all we know this technology could be 192kHz, 32 bit audio.

My understanding is that FLAC cannot be supported for playback in portable audio devices and i would suspect that there are engineers working on a new algorithm that would offer a similar level of compression (50%) when compared to FLAC without effecting the linearity when decompressed.

Monte, if memory serves me well there are 300 days of sunshine on the front range in Colorado, perhaps you should consider going 100% solar.
